Dear Emma
The levels of FSH and LH are certainly significantly under-rated and may indeed suggest either premature menopause or premature ovarian failure. Whilst these conditions may sound very similar they are remarkably different in that the latter condition is often reversible. Therefore it is prudent to visit a fertility specialist in order to evaluate the different options with regards to fertility treatment.

Were these tests done on day 2 of your cycle? Your FSH is extrememly high, anything above 15 is considered entering menopause.
